Marvel Cinematic Universe: 10 Things That Could Prematurely End It

10. Putting Too Much In The TV Shows

So far, Marvel has struck a fairly good balance in terms of what needs to be kept to the films and what can feature (or be expanded on) in the television shows. If anything, they€™ve erred too far on the side of caution, with Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D struggling to step out of the shadows of its cinematic cousins until late in its first season. However, one of the most important things in season two has been the appearance of characters from the Inhumans, with Skye revealed as Daisy Johnson and her father as occasional Thor villain Mr Hyde. This makes the show feel more significant, but if the Inhumans are introduced here and then leap into their scheduled film without any explanation of what€™s gone before it could alienate audiences not keyed into what€™s happening on the television. Things only get more unwieldily with an expanding TV roster. These shows will feature some big hitters in the comics, like Daredevil and Luke Cage, and are set to culminate in The Defenders. They€™ll have to be careful, because any event big enough to bring these heroes together is going to have repercussions that would no doubt impact the movies. Even in this day and age, not everyone has Netflix, so gambling too much on these series has the potential to backfire in a big way.
